A: Orange hue with a 1/2 finger of fizzy off white head. The head fades and leaves no real lacing on the glass.

S: Smells like a blueberry tart. Very sweet blueberry aroma with a hint of pastry, bready aroma as well.

T: Very smooth blueberry flavor that finishes clean. Hints of bread, or blueberry pie like crust with a hint of citrus in the finish. Not to sweet, and pretty well balanced finish.

M: Very thin fizzy mouthfeel.

O: Another good entry beer for people who do not drink beer often. I feel this beer has a strong fruit base that would help transition people into the craft beer movement. Very good blueberry aroma and taste that the beer blends well with, highlighting the blueberry flavor above all other flavors.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Nov 2015. Sampled on June 28, 2015.

The pour is a near headless yellow color.

Aroma of blueberry and roasted pale malts. Grainy too.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste is toasted pale malts and a wheelbarrow of blueberry. Not overpower but decently balanced as far as the style goes. I love blueberries. I use eat them and cook with them. I just can't fathom the excitement of a blueberry lager though. But breweries keep making them. As far as that goes, it is what you expect.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

A - Hazy gold with a small creamy tan head.

S - Fresh blueberry, sweet grains, light citrus, bready.

T - Tart blueberry throughout, sweet bready malt, lemon zest. Finishes slightly bitter with lots of graininess and subtle earthy hops. The blueberry is front and center but not at all overdone.

M - Crisp, refreshing, light-medium body. Mild carbonation.

O - I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Overall a good summer fruit beer with hints of tartness and bitterness and not overly sweet. Great drinkability.
